First meeting of Working Group 2


CollaborationMembers of the IKM Emergent Working Group 2 – Making the most of information – met on 4 and 5 of June in The Hague to kick start their planned activities.  
 
The group will focus on how information can be better recorded, handled, described and shaped to maximise its potential role in the construction of development knowledge.

Chris Addison and Peter Ballantyne of Euforic joined Dejan Dincic (DiploFoundation), Mike Powell (IKM Emergent) and Olivier Sagna (CODESRIA) to compare views and formulate plans for the coming period. Three main sets of activities are foreseen – generally focused on ‘production information and knowledge’, ‘finding information and knowledge,’ and ‘using information and knowledge.’

On the Euforic website, there are some first short videos about the IKM Emergent Programme which were taken at the time of this meeting. In these videos, Mike Powell introduces the Programme and some members of Working Group 2 describe their expectations.
